Abstracts and poster sessions at medical conferences can number in the hundreds, and it can be daunting to put them all on the app. Here are two ways of doing so that will make your life a lot easier:

Putting poster sessions in an Agenda module is easy. Our intuitive Excel templates make it a pretty simple copy/paste job if your information is clean and organized, with the exception of document attachment.

The Agenda is divided into a series of sessions, each with a time-slot, linked speakers, and attached documents. The Agenda module also allows you to make use of Tracks, which help you to organize the sessions visually to make them more easily navigable on the app. You can also attach documents to sessions, but if you're going to, it's best to upload them to your Document Library first and then just link to them from the sessions. This is how people typically add their abstracts and poster sessions.

Documents modules are a newer way of displaying your abstracts and poster sessions. Since poster sessions typically occur concurrently in huge breakouts, it's not always necessary to give them a time slot. Also, since each "speaker" basically presents on a poster, much of the relevant information is contained on their documentation. Using the documents module allows you to attach that documentation much more quickly than if you had to upload the specific documents for each poster session separately.

You can still achieve much of the same categorization functionality using Info Booths and links, but you might need support's help to walk you through it (click here to contact us!). If you want to try it on your own, just follow these instructions:

1. Create a documents module for every category you want to create.
2. Create a new Info Booth module and name it appropriately. This is the module attendees will see in the menu when they're accessing your abstracts and poster sessions.
3. Use the Add Link function within the Info Booth module to add links to each of your documents modules. Your attendees are going to use these links to access the documents in each documents module. Obviously, you have to name each link for each category and link it to the corresponding documents module.
4. Return to the App Design Studio module and hide your documents modules by clicking Hide to the right of each one. This will ensure that only your repurposed Info Booth appears to your attendees.

Now, when attendees go to the app, they will click into your repurposed Info Booth module, where they will see all the links you created to your different documents modules. Each link represents a category, and clicking the link will bring them to the appropriate documents module, giving them access to all the documents in that category.
